As founder and director of Beacon 3D, an annual art in public places exhibition in Beacon, New York, I am pleased to announce that the following 20 artists have been selected to show their work in the third annual edition to take place May 15 – October 15, 2015:
Ken Wright, Naomi Teppich, Judy Sigunick, Jennifer Smith, Peter Schlemowitz, Judith Kepner Rose, Jon Reichert, Franc Palaia, Rosemarie Oakman, Lori Merhige, Maria Lago, Matt Kinney, Insun Kim, Sarah Haviland, Ian George, Geoff Feder, Charlie Engelman, Ada Pilar Cruz, John BonSignore and Ed Benavente.
I would like to thank all the artists who sent in a proposal for this year’s exhibition and only say that I am sorry I could not have accepted more work. As it stands now, I am still scrambling to secure sites for those sculptures which have been selected. We have 10 sculptors returning from the 2014 edition and we welcome 10 new artists to this year’s roster. 11 are from Beacon and 9 are from Peekskill, Cold Spring, Damascus, PA, Wappinger Falls and Poughkeepsie areas. The work selected is in a diverse range of materials and many of the sculptures will be brand new fabrications as illustrated by the sketch below by artist Jon Reichert:
